This edition of Africa Night Tilburg could easily have been a disaster. But we knew… Read more

Africa Night

Ok. So you thought the 14th anniversary celebrations in May 2012 was great? Well the June edition of Africa Night Tilburg just topped it big time. Sometimes we wonder how many high points Africa Night can have. It seems whenever we think we have reached the ceiling, the Africa Night… Read more

Africa Night, do we have a date?

Africa Night

This edition of Africa Night Tilburg was one where only better things happened.

The more we entertained the guests,… Read more

Ramadan, DJs, Men and Africa Night

Africa Night

When the history of Africa Night Tilburg is written, the Augusts 2011 edition will go down as one of the most bizarre editions ever. First was the expectation that is was going to be a very quiet evening because this edition fell in the month of Ramadan. A significant number… Read more
